What do players think about Lost Ark?


Over on Reddit, a debate has been brewing on whether Amazon should have released Lost Ark first before New World. There are also numerous threads that talk about how much players are loving the game so far, and are getting upvotes.

User CoffeeLoverNathan wrote: “I’ve been waiting for this game for years and it’s totally worth it. I just can’t put the game down. Everything just feels so good and fluid.”

User Pariah adds: “My only criticism is that the new prologue feels really weird. […] The gameplay is just so damn cool. It feels so satisfying to beat up trolls in the area with a sword that’s bigger than me. I can’t wait for the launch!”


Can Lost Ark Replace Diablo?

  is lost ark a diablo alternative?  

Lost Ark may have Diablo’s ARPG elements, but it can’t replace Diablo due to the lack of hack-and-slay. It is the perfect game for Diablo fans, though.

The game features a lot of skills, character optimization, role-playing, raids, and more. The game being an MMORPG sets it apart from Diablo as it brings players deeper in a lot of places. Another thing is how payers can optimize their character or their island. There’s also various romances in MMORPGs, which hack-and-slay games lack.
